Mario Zoli (Tenor) (Ravenna 1879 - ?)

Probably he made his debut in 1898. In 1901 Zoli appeared at the Teatro Sociale in Cittadella as Alvaro in ‘’Forza del destino’’. In 1909 he sang the role of Andrea Chenier at the Teatro Cavour in Porto Maurizio. The next year he went to Savona, where at the Teatro Chiabrera he again sang in ‘’Forza del destino’’. Probably his last appearance was at the Teatro Apollo in Lugano, where he performed in ‘’Wally’’. It happened in 1914. His career was interrupted by the First World War. He made only one record for Phonodisc Mondial.
